Biden Hires Former Foreign Agent for Qatar

Joe Biden has hired a new senior adviser who was once a foreign agent for the terror sponsor nation of Qatar.

According to The Washington Free Beacon:

The White House announced on Friday evening that Erin Pelton is set to join the administration as a special assistant to Biden and a senior adviser on domestic policy issues. Pelton, a onetime foreign service officer and flak during the Obama administration, later advocated on behalf of foreign governments, including Qatar, according to public filings with the Department of Justice under the Foreign Agents Registration Act, which mandates that Americans who are lobbying for foreign governments disclose their work.

Pelton’s work for Qatar is likely to raise questions about the revolving door between the Biden White House and lobbying firms that represent a host of foreign governments. Pelton is just the latest Biden administration official to have questionable ties to adversarial regimes. Biden’s Asia policy czar, Kurt Campbell, for instance, helped found a group that critics say is “heavily influenced by the CCP.” The administration’s potential pick to lead NASA, former senator Bill Nelson, invested in a Chinese telecom company that is blacklisted by the Pentagon.

Pelton lobbied on behalf of the Qatari embassy in 2018, when she was working for Mercury Public Affairs, a top lobbying shop in Washington, D.C., according to the Justice Department filings.

Qatar has spent billions of dollars lobbying American politicians and influencers. The country funds prominent think tanks, such as the Brookings Institution, and was alleged last year to have funded hack attacks on some 1,500 individuals, including political operatives based in Washington, D.C. A 2020 lawsuit alleged that Qatar financed terror attacks that killed Americans.

Qatar helps the U.S. in its counterterrorism efforts but also is close to Iran and is suspected of funding Hezbollah.

Obama doesn’t possess the intellect to call the shots at this level. There is one or more higher level puppet masters

I do have a question for the MSM – if and when Biden ever holds a press conference again. And that is, “Mr. Biden, who is running the government”?

Biden doesn’t have the where-with-all to hire anyone. WHO is actually running the country now? Again, since we have such a lame Supreme Court, which in my view, certainly are not needed anymore since they do not wish to uphold the Constitution; thus we can save hundreds of thousands of dollars by abolishing these sit on your ass people drawing a paycheck. You’all should be sorry about yourselves.

If Biden actually hired him or not, this should concern everyone. Biden is a puppet taking orders from someone else. But these people being put in our government who are obviously foreigners supporting activities that have no business in our government should be criminal! Yet nothing is done and they are put in anyway. WHO is really running this administration? I doubt it is Obama, someone else is pulling the puppet strings.
